Hazardous Energy Control
(lockout / tagout)
 
If you believe you have been discriminated against by your employer because you have complained about unsafe or unhealthful working conditions, or engaged in any other protected activity (see 29 CFR 1977 for more details), then you are allowed to complain to your local OSHA Area Office within 30 days of the alleged discrimination. OSHA will investigate (or refer the complaint to an OSHA-approved State) and if your allegation is upheld, you will be given back pay or whatever remuneration OSHA determines is fair.
 
If you have tried everything suggested above and are still not satisfied, you should really look into trying to get another job. Your health and safety are not worth sacrificing just to keep working in an unsafe environment. But before going to this extreme, you should honestly and politely try the above steps to resolve the problem.
